Getting Your Spring Porch Ready

One of the ways I love to welcome Spring into our home is to refresh our front porch! Today I’m sharing my 5 Tips for Creating the Prettiest Spring Porch! 

A welcoming and relaxing porch can have so much curb appeal! It is the perfect place for you and your family to hang out, read a book, have your morning coffee, welcome your guests or give that friendly wave to neighbors walking by! 

In our neighborhood, everyone and I mean everyone, walks around our development! It’s an active and friendly community with beautiful new sidewalks and very friendly neighbors.  One thing is for certain, you can expect your walk to take extra time due to everyone stopping along the way to chit-chat.  It’s been a long winter up here in the North and we are all ready to hang out, say hello, and get caught up on what’s new!  

Five Tips for Decorating Your Spring Porch

The first thing I like to do is thoroughly sweep the space. I then hose off my entire porch, being sure to get get the winter debris and dust all cleaned off. Doing a thorough cleaning and prep is key for getting the look and feel of total relaxation. If you have any windows, now is a great time to wash those as well. You certainly don’t want to decorate everything then look over your shoulder and see cobwebs in the corner! That is not relaxing!  Once the porch dries you are ready to add your decor.

Next add a durable and fun rug to anchor your porch furniture. Adding a carpet gives your space definition and an outline for your furniture.

When that is done it’s time to add your seating. Whether you like to mix or match your seating, it’s totally up to you. I’ve gone with symmetry and have two chairs that are the same. I’ve also added a small table to hold drinks or a lovely scented candle or snacks.

If you like you can add a pretty privacy curtain tied to one side, a porch swing if you have room, or a beautiful strand of lights for a fun, whimsical feeling. 

Once you have the base items selected, it’s time to decorate your space. Pillows can really change the look by either matching or coordinating with the rug. I’ve added red cushions to match the siding of our home with two floral accent pillows Adding plants, a small tree, or a pot of flowers are easy and wonderful ways to create a cozy corner. If you have overhead lighting, a ceiling fan is a wonderful idea as well for the nights when it’s hot out and you’d like a soft breeze.
